Ethno Chic- November 2016 they released Ethno Chic and the name plus the design raised a lot of questions. The company shared that it was based on Turkish kilim designs and that the owner was of Turkish descent.

Resolutions of Questionable Practices

Late 2015 Kokadi released a series of images featuring male models babywearing. Many felt the styling of the models perpetuated the hypersexualizaiton of babywearing dads, and that the marketing effort was to use sexualization to market towards babywearing moms as opposed to babywearing dads. We recognize that this analysis perpetuates the gender binary and that not everyone identifies as a mom or dad.
